"nightline" later. and david muir will be right
is a young reporter. >> -- >> why was he unpopular with mrs. lincoln? >> she never ceased to view him as a rival for her husband's position. she categorized seward as an abolitionist. she did not do her husband's position on slavery, but seward was an abolitionist. she comes from a southern background of slaves. seward, at one point, checks her desire to spend public funds for private purposes. there were a lot of reasons mary lincoln and william seward never hit it off. >> what else is important? >> the approachable, talkative -- he is an incredibly -- he has a wonderful gift to meet the queen of england, or a common worker, and sit down and chat with them. >> when he was senator, what was the known for? >> mostly for the speech he gave against the compromise of 1850. he opposed the extension of slavery into the western territories and said those territories were dedicated by a higher law of freedom rather than slavery. it was an elegant, 3 hour argument for the immediate admission of california and against the expansion of slavery into the west. it boiled down to a higher law. >> wa
the president take all the pushing to say, this is what i'm going to achieve. and i think that's what lincoln did. i think that's the challenge that mr. obama has now. and i think that was very critical in that movie. i wish frederick douglass pushing lincoln would have been a scene in the movie because i think that's what we're dealing with, david. real leaders can take pushing from all sides. but at the end of the day, they say how do i really believe and get something concrete done. >> and the people love you. remember, the scene where his wife, played by sally field, says, the people love my husband. and he used that. >> yes. and it's not just getting things done, although it's surely that. it's not just the practicality of compromise and paying attention to other people. it is surely that. but one of the reasons people loved lincoln, and one of the things that gave lincoln his steel and his passion, was he was animated by a grand idea. which was to create a more perfect union, and to abolish slavery once and for all. and he was willing to let men die for that idea. >> and one of the thin
of that -- >> right. >> i want to go back to mrs. lincoln saying her husband was loved, which he certainly was. and also clearly he was an imperfect man who engaged in questionable tactics at times, although they were successful. i don't think the american people expect their leaders to be perfect, ever. in fact, i think americans tend to embrace people in all their imperfection. what they expect is their leaders to be up to the challenge of the time. >> i want to shift gears just slightly as we reflect on our -- all the things that make us thankful on this thanksgiving weekend. i wanted to take just a couple of minutes to go to new york with congressman gregory meeks. he joins us. his district, of course, includes far rockaway and queens which was hit so hard during hurricane sandy. congressman, it's good to have you here. and i wanted to make sure we were checking in to see how folks in the hurricane zone were fairing this thanksgiving and this thanksgiving weekend. tell me about the week you've had with folks up there as we look at the images. >> let me tell you, first, every individual on
years ago, our forefathers brought forth henry fonda as young mr. lincoln. a year later, raymond massey as abe lincoln in illinois. the next three score and 11 were pretty lean lincolnwise. apart from cameos and vampire extravaganzas. now three days after you vote for president comes lincoln, directed by steven spielberg, written by pulitzer prize winning playwright tony curbner starring daniel day lewis as maybe our greatest president. >> blood has been slilt to afford us this moment, now, now, now. >> reporter: a royal pedigree. i'm hardly worthy to review it. but this is is a democracy so... it's terrific! and surprising. it covers only a few months in 1865 from the fall of one of the confederacy's last strongholds to the vote on the 13th amendment to the assassination. see, the emancipation proclamation was an executive order. lincoln needed congress to make blacks permanently equal under the law. >> congress must never declare equal those whom god created unequal. >> reporter: so it's about politics. the fine and course art of persuasion. >> the same gang of talentless hicks and ha
as mr. lincoln and as molly. and spent an hour of some long, weird improv. but it was the first -- it was the beginning of he and i beginning -- starting that relationship, that you see on the screen. and had i not done that, we wouldn't have found mary. >> and you actually stayed in character throughout the shooting. >> sure. but you always do that. this was done so beautifully because steven, with the help of daniel, made this miraculous stage for the actors to do their work. the crew wasn't yelling and do as they usually do when they have to do their work. they weren't saying, hey, about that red sox game? they disappeared. i never saw them. >> he would send you e-mails, daniel day-lewis, as abraham lincoln on your off days. >> that's not quite true. he was in ireland. i was in los angeles. he doesn't have e-mail. he doesn't do that. so, we had no way to really begin knowing each other. we couldn't say, i'll meet you for a cup of coffee. but he does have a cell phone. he couldn't call me. it would be night and morning and stuff. he would text me periodically. and it was lovel
have been major flops. >> well, "young mr. lincoln" is one we can begin with. that stars hollywood legends as american legends. henry fonda plays this man. this movie is from 1939. and it's about how lincoln got started as a lawyer. and he defends two men who are wrongfully accused of murder, and again, standing up for what he believes in and for what's right when it's very unpopular. this film is nominated for an academy award, so you can't go wrong with it. if it is good enough for the library of congress and preservation in our national film registry, it's good enough for us. >> what's next? >> the next one is a movie that really hit me hard when i first saw it. i was younger and really unaware of what people went through when they're serving our nation. "glory" is the next pick starring denzel washington and matthew brodrick. it's about the 54th massachusetts volunteer infantry that was one of the first official infantries to have all african-american members and they were led by colonel shaw played by matthew brodrick in a surprisingly serious role. everybody knows him as ferr
lincoln and did so because they had come to regard mr. lincoln with sentiments of ven ration and love. to them he was really father abraham. by supporting him, the soldiers understood they were voting to prolong the war but they voted because this was a president whose cause, their own cause was embodied. when i read that about the soldiers i thought that's like black voters with president obama. >> and white voters including me, as well. i think what happened in this election is we saw the difference of someone who we believe and someone we don't believe. mitt romney we just did not believe. he simply was lying to us. when president obama spoke and when he speaks we know his intentions are good. we know his vision is right for this country. when he gave the victory speech and said these are these united states of america, we believed that. we genuinely believed that. >> believing that is critical to the preservation of the union. >> there's no question about it, but it also says who the person is. and see, i think that some of the similarities in lincoln's life as a person growing up
lewis and she did a screen test and he said, good morning, mother, just like lincoln would. good morning, mr. president. they stayed in complete, total character the entire time and it was electric when they were together. that's how it happened. i hope that story's true. >> this is based on a book called "team of rivals." they said daniel day lewis was so interested in the part, asked her to take him to lincoln's old home in illinois where he could walk around, feel it, breathe it. it has oscar written all over it. it's a home run. >> i can't wait! >> whether or not you're into that history, doesn't matter. it's a beautiful story. >> oh, good, hoda woman. >>> guess who's here. >> philip philips. so, so cute he had to be named that twice. season 11 "american idol" winner and georgia native. proud proud boy. he had a single called "home" that became a massive hit. went double platinum. reached number one on itunes, became the unofficial theme to the summer olympics, what do you want? >> he's going to sing us a song that's not been sung before. >> philip philips sings "gone, gone, gone." t
of lincoln. pleat quote. with all due respect, mr. president, try to be a tad more humble. i knew abe lincoln. you are no abe lincoln. but seriously, you advised that the world is not going to be transform by him or anybody else. what do you mean? >> the problem is that the middle east, that i think is going to be one area of the world in which most of threats and challenges. it's not a rising china. it's not a russia seeking to regain its power and stature. real threat to american interests seems to be coming from a broken and dysfunctional middle east in which we're stuck and his problem. and had mitt romney become president as well, middle east is divided into migraines on one hand and root canal operations on the other. there are not a lot of opportunities for solutions. >> gregg: pick your poison. you are right. let's talk specifics. let's talk about iran first. you believe that the president should explore and exhaust diplomacy before you are taking military action. you are very specific. let's put this on the screen. you write this, start with an interim arrange. that deals with the is
to his official schedule, he just hosted a v.i.p. private viewing of the new movie "lincoln," which by the way, you paid for. mr. president, i hope you were taking notes and learned a thing or two about honesty and integrity while you were watching it because while you sat in your private theater with your popcorn, the famil of the benghazi victims are at home, waiting for you to finally come clean about what really happened on that fateful day. in other words, what did you know? when did you know it? joining me with the developing story, two men in the room for the closed hearing. peter king and joe heck. gentlemen, welcome back to "hannity." >> good to be with you? >> congressman, let's start with you. take us in the room. what did you learn today? >> want all we wanted to learn, specifically, sean, you mentioned the talking points. the intelligence community was asked, said that when they prepared the talking points, they had language in there saying that al qaeda affiliated groups were directly involved in the attack. when the talk points left the intelligence community and went
